Hi, I am developing an application using Java/JSP and web container is tomcat. Can anybody guide me how should I go abt writing connection class? Is it ok to make connection through servlet init method?
Do you want to write your own connection class? Unless you're developing your own database, you generally want to use an exisitng Connection class with a JDBC driver that comes with your database.
I'd recommenting using lazy instantiation (only create it the first time you need it) for your database connection for two reasons: 1) better performance overall 2) better control- you can close it after you are done so that you dont run out of connections
